Socks, have you looked on simscave? They've saved a lot of ts2 items from defunct ts2 sites...

...A veritable treasure trove of ts2 cc has been saved there :D

...also, try the Wayback Machine. If you can copy the url (even if it goes to an empty site), often the Wayback Machine may have the site cached...

...if so, and you can find the download link, you can often copy that url and paste it into a regular browser window and it will still work. People may have shut down their sites, but they never removed their downloads.

It is worth a try. :D

I call a creator like this ....'Nah nah nah nah nah, I have it and you can't get it!'

I prefer they just keep it to themselves, don't want to see it giggle Fortunately there's not too many that do this.

What is just as annoying is the fact that they even ignore your very friendly compliments and the wcif request. swear
They are selfish.... plain and simple selfish.
This game is about sharing!

I think this is probably this biggest complaint I see/hear about in the ts4 community... the lack of response and sharing.

I get if something is a personal conversion/recolor or a gift or due to the TOU of the original creator. I do.

I get if someone is behind in catching up with requests/inbox questions, etc.

I don't get the rudeness or completely ignoring someone.

Some of the most popular creators are super cool and nice. It may take them a long time to respond, but they do :D My hat is off to them <3

I'll use Simcredible as an example......
They have been around since Sims 1 (but have changed hands about 3 times)
They probably produce some of the absolute best quality content and yet they are the nicest people you could ever wish to meet......I love these girls, they are always so humble, oh and ask them a question.........nothing is too much trouble

You are so right Lorry .. with every word you had written ... I've just started dl new Sims content a few weeks ago .. and I am shocked
that it seams that there are no "normal" dl-links anymore. Adfly is kind of horrible - I've catch a virus while downloading (thankful that I am having
a good Antivirusprogram which discovered it). Apart from the fact that it really seams everyone needs to earn money .. thats a sad development! It sucks!

The thing that irritates me the most, is that a lot of these creator's sites are blogs or tumbler, most of those are free for anybody to use. So, the ad-fly money isn't to help pay for costs of running their site and so many of them only do conversions, they don't even recolor things, so they're not their own creations or even doing mesh editing to warrant the ad-fly money to "pay for their time".

I always cringe whenever I am chasing down a mesh or see a new object I want and it's on a blog or tumbler, because I can almost bet that it will be an ad-fly link (or 2 ... or 3, sometimes I never can get to it, there's so many I give up) before I can get to the download page

Simple conversions (deco items, chairs, sofas, tables, dressers, shelves, paintings, etc) don't take any time to do, especially if they're TS3 items because they're mapped exactly the same as TS4 objects are so they're not having to go into blender and remap the object to work with the texture. More complex items such as kitchen cabinets, beds (unless it's just a frame to use with a TS4 mattresses) appliances, bathtubs, windows, doors, and candles are much harder and do take more time and knowledge to do to make them work in the game and not just be a deco item.

And, don't get me started about some of these conversions, I have seen so many conversions by creators (behind ad-fly) that the original creator clearly states not to convert they objects or do what you want but "keep it free" and don't hide it behind ad-fly, and yet they still convert these things, still put it behind ad-fly and still make money off of someone else's hard work!

Crissi the one I dislike most is short.st, it has disabled my computer on quite a few occasions, which requires a re start. I get so mad angry As for the naked pictures, I wonder if these people realise what we have to go through to get to their download.
Maybe we need to start file sharing again! I am happy to send a file to anyone via email if I have it.
Like TJ says, this is not their content, they are either converting it or recolouring it.

TJ DITTO to everything you have said........it is so frustrating. These people are making money off the back of someone's hard work.

I cringe when I have to go to a certain site, the page is covered in ads, and when you try to get to the download link, the ad follows you......what a lot of crap.

And then you have a converter that offers downloads one piece at a time, rather than a set......every click brings up an ad. computersmi

Oh and I noticed someone is offering 'ad free' for a couple of dollars...WTF

Oh, I'm right there with all of your comments, ladies...

...and I'm with Lorry. If you think I might have it, just ask me via pm. If I do, well, you know my answer.

...I have the time and ability to go get things -- you can even send me links if you want.

I don't mind spending some time, once or twice a week doing that.

Anita - I've not run into that... May I assist in running down something for you? I guess the creators I've approached were nice. I'm sorry those you contacted were not. I really find that a terrible shame.

I really have gone it alone for so long before jumping all the way in here at cherryblossom that I really got used to figuring out how to find what I was looking for...

...I didn't even know what wcif stood for, for a really long time! lol

Seriously... the community these days is all over the place. I find it a strange place and am really happy when I find cool people there. (You are all wonderful in here <3)

So, if I can help, I will. Just ask <3

Suzanne: you were indeed my last hope..... but maybe it will take her awhile to reply. I will keep looking though.
And you are sooo kind with your willingness to assist us!
